Sandplay Therapy is a powerful, creative and transformational healing process for adults and children, using symbol and metaphor to connect with and express our unconscious.
During your session you create a three-dimensional picture or a miniature "world" within the boundaries of the specially designed sandtray. This can help express your innermost feelings, make you aware of your unconscious processes, develop insight into the deeper layers of your being, gradually soften internal conflicts and bring about the sense of integration and wholeness. Personal change, healing and problem resolution occur through symbolic exploration and alchemical transformation within the sandtray.
Sandplay is suitable for people of all ages and backgrounds, and has a number of advantages over conventional talking therapies:
Disclosure of difficult personal information is not required
You are in control of what you do in the session
Helps to enhance creativity and intuition
Works mostly on unconscious level and does not demand conscious effort
Promotes sense of play and fun
Safe, gentle and powerful at the same time
Can help enhance spiritual connection and growth
There is no requirement for home tasks to be completed between sessions
Sessions can take place at longer intervals than with traditional talking therapies
One-off or occasional sessions can be very powerful in their own right
